Scenes from Black Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Paulick Report is excited to have photographer Eric Kalet back in Baltimore this year to share his unique perspective on Preakness week.

Each day, we'll see through Eric's eyes the preparations, festivities, and important moments leading up to the Black-Eyed Susan and Preakness, and of course, the races themselves.

The Preakness contenders were out in force Friday morning at Pimlico, with some of them becoming acquainted with the track for the first time.The weather was picture-perfect as Nyquist, Exaggerator, and the rest of the Preakness challengers continued to prepare for the big race on Saturday.

Racing on Friday afternoon saw a pair of Dale Romans-trained fillies capture the exacta in the Black-Eyed Susan, a 10-year-old gelding win his 32nd lifetime race, and two one-time graded stakes winners got their second graded victories.
